The Marikina City Police welcomed on Thursday its newly-installed chief of police who vowed to maintain the peace and order in the city.
Sr. Supt. Redrico Maranan assumed his new post as chief of the Marikina City Police, in a change of command ceremony led by Eastern Police District (EPD) Director Chief Supt. Christopher Tambungan at the city police headquarters Thursday morning.
Maranan replaced Sr. Supt. Roger Quesada who is now assigned as the new chief of the directorial staff of the Police Regional Office 4B-MIMAROPA (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan).
“I will do my best to maintain the peace and order of this beautiful city,” Maranan said in his message.
“I shall at least equate with the accomplishment of Colonel Roger Quesada, and of course surpass the expectations of our district director Chief Supt. Christopher Tambungan,” he added.
Maranan also said that his former assignments in the cities of Las Piñas, Pasay, Parañaque, Makati, and in the Police Regional Office 4A-CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) enabled him to lead the police force of the country’s shoe capital.
The EPD chief, on the other hand, urged city police personnel to support Maranan in making the district “the home of excellent, professional and disciplined policemen.”
“Let us work hand in hand in support as we march toward peace, and giving Marikina a secure and a safe haven,” Tambungan said.
